    RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX and validation

    Our good friend Peter Blum recently announced official support for our upcoming RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX (aka "Prometheus"). All customers that are using his Data Entry Suite will be able to integrate validation into the Telerik controls almost invisibly and without much pain and effort.    For those of you that are not familiar with Peter Blum, he is an ASP Insider and the author of the BEST set of validation controls on the market. I don't have any reservations to recommend his products as they are well done, very stable and very well documented.

    Web Resources demystified: Part 2

RadControls for ASP.NET provide rich client-side functionality and nice look trough a number of external files - JavaScript code and CSS definitions. Those resources are registered through <script> or <link> tags and are downloaded by the browser. Part of the client-side code in RadControls “Prometheus” is shared between all controls. It is contained in a different file to prevent downloading it multiple times when several controls coexist in a...

    Licensing for RadControls "Prometheus" for ASP.NET

    It seems that despite our best efforts to educate customers, we haven't done a great job at letting everyone know that: When you buy a RadControls for ASP.NET license, with subscription or not, you get a matching license for "Prometheus" controls and you can download the developer build of the controls from your Client.net account. It is up to you to decide whether you want to use the classic controls or the "Prometheus" ones. Everyone who buys an ASP.NET Subscription or a subscription license for the all-inclusive SKU (which includes all UI components for web and desktop development plus Telerik Reporting) gets "Prometheus" as a...
